It’s that time that the DLC life of a Call of Duty game must end to make way for the next yearly addition to the series. This time, the fourth and final DLC for last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, titled Reckoning, will be available on August 4th for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
As usual, the DLC pack will feature 4 new maps and one new Exo-Zombie chapter. The Exo-Zombie chapter will feature Bill Paxton, Bruce Campbell, Jon Bernthal and Rose McGowan up against new “fused” Exo Zombies and former ally John Malkovich. The rest of the pack are as follows:
- Overload: Enjoy the grand view of downtown New Baghdad from this exotic compound, complete with fountains, gardens and decorative plasma lamps. The map’s multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines highlight medium to long-range combat, and firing a shot at the lamps will send enemies flying in a burst of energy.
- Quarantine: Following a deadly viral outbreak, the island has been converted into a biological testing center. This medium sized map’s tight corners dial up the speed and open areas combine to allow for any style of gameplay. Activate the map-based scorestreak to unleash a devastating ship-fired missile strike.
- Fracture: Discover what secrets are locked in the ice in this arctic excavation site. Take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment through large combat areas cradled on the shelf of a glacier. Stay alert as the timed event cracks the ice sheet, sending one lane sinking to the depths.
- Swarm: Reconstruction is underway in Seoul, South Korea, congesting narrow corridors of this small to medium sized map with vehicles and equipment. Take position in war-scarred storefronts that provide plenty of cover over the streets or flank the enemy through close quarter interiors in the center of the map.
The pack will be the last of the Call of Duty map packs to release early as part of Microsoft’s exclusivity deal, as the deal has been transferred to Sony with the upcoming Black Ops 3.
